My expectation is that the customers should be able to develop their own quizzes, because it's their learning methodology. Indeed, Codebashing is a context E-learning platform that sharpens the developers' skills to fix vulnerabilities and develop secure codes, expanding on the learning by doing concept work and using the gamification methodology. Codebashing teaches developers the principles of secure coding and helps them sharpen their security skills in the most efficient way. So if customers would be able to define their own quizzes or exams, it would be very good. That is the only missing part that I see - customer based scenarios, examinations and quizzes, the rest is excellent.

I've never really considered any improvements as the solution tends to offer the exact feature sets we need. The configuration could use some improvement. The user interface could be updated and refreshed. It has the appearance of being very basic. If you look at the reporting, it only gives you a basic summary and then gives you details of the code and maybe some suggestions. It's not clear on the vulnerabilities per se. It could be more robust. It would be ideal if we could get an IDE plugin on the solution. That makes it easier when you are developing and when you are writing your code. You can check the vulnerabilities before you actually go for the scan.

Codebashing should be available for everybody to use without having to obtain a license. This solution is available for Windows only and does not have a Linux distribution.

I can't recall any real issues we had using the solution in the past. The solution should make the configuration more simple. Sometimes the configuration is complex. In future releases, the solution should introduce incremental objects. I'd like to be able to check what the developers are doing on the fly.

We would like to be able to add our own lessons to the platform because right now we can't add our own information. It would be helpful to create a "lesson platform", for example. It would be helpful if the solution included tests or exams that would allow you to study, for example, all Java vulnerabilities, and then afterward test your knowledge. This is a typical functionality for learning platforms. I would like to see more integration with other educational platforms. They have a good start because it integrates well with their own solutions.
